Subject: 70's film which was atypical
considering the brutality and cruelty used by the South African-apartheid regime this must have been very controversial, and now the roles are reversed; the cop who's dedication to his job above all is the heel while the "terrorist" is the hero, and the true freedom fighters were fighting apartheid.

interesting film with some unique plot twists

Subject: Famous relation
Van Dissel is Vin Diesel's great uncle.

The whole family is gay - not that there's anything wrong with that.
